This section describes ways in which you can wire the OOB ports to the management switch.

  • Connect server OOB ports to an external OOB management switch. This is the recommended method.

  • Connect server OOB ports to the management switch in the rack and assign static IP addresses to them. If you choose to use the 192.168.0.0/22 network, ensure that the IP addresses are within the range of 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.3.253. You cannot use IP address outside this range.
